Hawley Pupils meet David Walliams
In December, two of our pupils, Maisie Coulton and her sister Erin Coulton were invited to meet David Walliams for afternoon tea. The event, organised by Shooting Star Chase ended with David reading all the guests a story from one of his books. Maisie couldn't wait to meet David as she is a huge fan and she was delighted to tell him all about the work that her and her fellow pupils in year 3 and 4 had completed during their David Walliams topic in the Autumn term. Have a look at the video message he sent to the children at Hawley below.
The children in Year 3/4 welcomed two STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) ambassadors from QinetiQ in Farnborough to inspire their learning at the end of November. They learnt how robots are used in real life and discussed how information is sent via satellites to program robots in space. The children programed the STEM ambassadors to move around the classroom and then worked in groups developing their coding skills. They used our ProBots, our ProBot computer software, Scratch programing and a bank of computers and robots brought in by the ambassadors and are now very inspired as they embark on their WallE topic.
